Blog Overhaul

The release of WordPress 3.0 introduced a lot of good stuff behind the scenes that I wanted to take advantage of. The new built in Twenty Ten theme incorporates all this new stuff and is pretty nice so I ditched my old custom theme that I was never super happy with. Overall changes:

  • Switched to Twenty Ten theme
  • Customized header with one of my panoramas from Kauai (Menehune Fishpond just south of Lihue)
  • Built navigation menu using new Menu feature
  • Added Contact form
  • Added Google Reader snippet to display recent starred items in sidebar
  • Setup footer widgets with Recent Posts, Tag Cloud, Pages and Categories for unobtrusive navigation links
  • Deactivated Wordbooker, less content Facebook has of mine the better
  • Enabled threaded comments, giving it another try

  1. It’s not bad. They’re a little spread out, but that’s probably just some CSS master coding to shrink em down to college ruled style.
